"Hanging" 50 feet above the ground with nothing but a rope between me and the solid ground was an exhilarating experience. That's me, doing a gravity-defying stunt at Sarmiento campsite in Tanay. I was never afraid of heights but as the Army guy (our scout master) was putting harness on me, giving me instructions, and the wind was blowing around the tower, I felt my knees tremble a little bit. It was my first rappel and I thought, "What the hell am I doing here?" I was about to change my mind when he gently asked, "Ma'am, are you sure you're not pregnant?"...I forgot my nervousness and almost jumped head first!:D Of course, I was not pregnant---I'm just a woman of...substance (Ha-ha). I remember gobbling a bag of french fries before climbing the tower. It was probably the french fries that gave me the guts and energy to rappel. :D No regrets, I'll do it again in a heartbeat!
